Trying so hard to learn!


Reading on the potty
Originally uploaded by chiggster
To say his is a poorly little boy, Jack is trying really hard to be a Big Boy this week. He has taken to sitting on his potty with a book, and has a good go and pulling his trousers off first (with varying degrees of success depending what he's dressed in). He'll sit there for 10 mins or more if you read to him, and remember to bring lots of book with you so he doesn't run off at the end of every story to get a new one. But he's not actually managed to "go" yet.

Still, it's early days and I think he's doing well!

He's also making more of an effort to feed himself using his fork and spoon which is GREAT and means we don't have to let our food go cold while we feed him. He still needs a little help with it - he gets very wound up if the food he is trying to stab with the fork wont play nice and just be stabbed! So we still have to stab the food for him, but he's getting better and would rather feed himself than be fed.

His chicken pox are starting to crust over now so hopefully in a few days time they'll be gone. He has started to rub them a bit though and has a huge scratch on his face today. I've been out and bought some more calamine lotion today (he's gone through one bottle already) and he's got really good at having it applied. He sits on his potty while I cover him in the stuff!! He's got a little too fond of his calpol though, and his piriton... I think he'll be most miffed when he doesn't get any more medicine!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....?

I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights.

We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear.

It was one of thos…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know
